You are here because you have a problem.
Hard as you try, you haven’t been able to articulate your message, book speaking gigs, make real connections or turn a profit.
You need to connect your product or services to the reason behind why you do it, and more importantly, you have to give your clients or customers a reason why they should pick you rather than someone else.
Without this connection, you’re just like everyone else who does what you do.
I help you uncover the one thing your competition doesn’t have– your story (In my world, I call this your WONDER). And then, I help you market it.
So you don’t have to feel ordinary or feel no one wants what you offer or feel like no one is checking for you.
With my process, I guide you to become the hero in your own story. ‘Cause life is too short for people not to know you.
I help you make people care.
THREE WAYS I HELP YOU TELL YOUR STORY + BECOME THE HERO OF YOUR JOURNEY
YOUR STORY MAKES YOU MEMORABLE
The name on my birth certificate reads Shereese. I narrowly escaped being a “B” because my mother planned to name me Bridgette. That was close. 😉
When I was born the first of three.
When I discovered I could carry a tune and spent years in an ensemble chorus group.
When I placed in gifted and talented classes and always sat in the front.
When I learned my dad had been murdered and I opted out of the funeral. It wasn’t until I grew up when I realized the many regrets I would have.
When I married the love of my life in a Philadelphia courtroom months before he was sentenced to prison for 12 ½ to 25 years.
When I lived life as a prisoner’s wife not yet knowing my real power.
When I couldn’t.
When I started the organization Prisoners’ Wives, Girlfriends and Partners (PWGP) to give women like me a place to be seen and heard.
When I realized through PWGP, I’d reach all seven continents. When I realized the power of one voice.
When I used my life and my skills to tell the stories of those who largely go unheard. I would spend 15 years in nonprofit marketing giving back.
When I finally chose myself and walked away from a “good-paying job” so I could pursue my dreams of business ownership.
When I interned through my life learning the art of storytelling and branding. When I had to make my personal drama relatable to others and be affable enough to allow others to get close so I could educate.
When I guide my clients to become their own hero.
When I divorced my husband months before he came home and remarried him 8 months later.
When I’ve always had a side hustle because I can’t shut off my creativity. I’m the founder of THE LEAGUE Network – a story + marketing training that’s even better with superfriends. I’m the founder of Prisoners’ Wives, Girlfriends and Partners – a resource for families separated by prison. I’m the co-founder of Brown Girls Marketing – affordable marketing for minority women businesses. And I’ve made and sold clothing, jewelry, candy crafts and so much more.
When I realized the “S” on my chest would eventually become WONDER because that’s where love and humanity resides.
When I think about this journey that’s all mine.
… cries at commercials and really good movie endings (or really bad ones).
… loves the underdog, the slow runner, the impossible dream.
… loves musicals and believes the world’s problems would be far less contentious if we had to argue and disagree in song. I’ve been known to spontaneously break into song (don’t worry, I’m normally alone).
… believes in justice understanding that justice is not the necessarily the outcome but the process.
… believes in the lyrics and sweeping notions of We Are the World and Man in the Mirror (Though I have to admit, I’m not sure if that’s because Michael Jackson was involved. I’ve won two Halloween contests dressed as the King of Pop. #justsayin).
… like to boldly color outside the lines until my OCD kicks in. #erase
… loves all things Wonder Woman. I could open a museum. I’m not saying I’m Wonder Woman. I’m just saying no one has ever seen me and Wonder Woman in the same room. (You do the math).
… is an INFP (The Mediator) on Myers-Briggs personality test. Described as: INFP (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving) personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration. (Not a coincidence my business is centered around making people care).
… knows that emotion sells and I use it handily.
… believes when no one else does.
